(Thus)Duss, the end of an Era(Era)

Dussera or Dasara was the time when Mysore really regained its glorious past. But this time around, I have refrained myself from posting anything much on Dasara or publicizing it on my blog. The reason to this, the seemingly corrupt administration not matching the early glamor and the false promises from the elected representatives.

Earlier during Dasara, the whole city of Mysore used to get spruced up like a bride. But well this time around the city stinks. The city has been famous for its simplicty, patience and beauty. But all the three aspects are lacking this time around. The government it seems has spent around 6.5 crores for Dasara this time and what do we get in return – pot hole ridden roads, unmanned traffic, flooded corners and junctions!

The government has even publicized the opening of the city’s airport. But with no airline seeing a promise, it looks like that’s a damp squib as well. The civil aviation minister as per a local news paper report has rejected the offer to open the airport without a roster in place.

I have openly expressed support to the BJP in my previous blogs, but well, I think the party must learn to properly decentralize its administration and let locals look in, if they want a festival of grand scale as Dasara to be a success. This Dasara has been very lacklusture and I hope its not the end of an era and will be a big success in the years to come.
